: 03 Heated seats turning off in seconds

03-13-08, 10:36 AM
Newbie here... I use forums alot for this usefull bit of info, and its always a great place to get info. I've got an 03 escalade, 6.0 Awd, loaded up, nav blah blah whatever, anyway the heated seats in the front seem to have a conspiracy going against me. I turn em on, and in about 15-20 second they turn off, so i try again, then its 5 seconds, and they are off again, then its instant, as soon as the light kicks on, its off, and its the same on both front seats. I'm guessing a module of some sort, but does anyone have any info on this? The rear captians chairs work fine still, so i gues they are on a seperate module. I cant seem to find any info on this anywhere, so i know a forum would be the place to ask, so here i am.

Same thing happens to me...but only with the front passenger seat. The other 3 are fine.

I'd like to know why also.

I am pretty sure the 07's have a module under each front seat, not sure about the 02's to 06's, maybe Bill will chime in on this. :)

ill be checking out the wiring this weekend for any pinch condition, and ill keep ya posted, but keep some answers flowing!

each seat has its own module, alot of the time the heaters/motors depending on if u have cooled seats die. But since both front seats do it, i would check for pinches or shorts to ground.
just read the other thread you posted in, sounds like you have 2 motors or more out, one in each seat, or both the modules crapped, or any combination of those. you need a multi-meter, a wiring diagram, and the ability to decipher a GM wiring schematic lol.

sorry for the delay, i had a short notice work trip, and i still havent got around to looking under the seat, so i still gotta check out the wiring, but I'm out of town, and i wont be back until april 2nd... :rant2:

Anyway, this started all at once, one day they both worked, next day, they both didnt, so thats why in my head something tells me there must be a module that runs them both that took a shite...

I am an engineer, wiring diagrams make perfect sense to me! I have a multimeter & i know how to use it, so where can i find a wiring diagram and some schematics online for this seat system and module?

And it does not have cooled seats, just heated... Thanks again!
